Atlanta, Georgia metal band, Dead Rites, are pleased to offer up a new song from their forthcoming album Bereavement, due out on October 28th, 2016. Titled “Asphyxiate” the track follows-up the guys’ last single “Gods, Demons, and Men” and is equally heavy!

Bereavement is easily Dead Rites’ best material to date and, when asked about the album, lead vocalist/songwriter Radu noted: “Bereavement is an album that represents the acceptance of loss to me personally. Bereavement is a mixture of all of the influences that have made Dead Rites who we are. I also feel that Bereavement is the culmination of three years of nonstop performances. It is somber and accepting and ultimately angry with a glimmer of hope for what’s to come.”
